Rome, Italy, May 29, 2013 / 15:04 pm
The Legionaries of Christ and the members of Regnum Christi will enter a period of atonement and prayer in preparation for upcoming events that will determine the future of their spiritual family.
The announcement was made in a May 28 letter signed by Fr. Sylvester Heereman, the Vicar General and acting Director General of the Legion, along with Gloria Rodríguez and Jorge López; directors of the female and male branches respectively of the consecrated members of Regnum Christi.
"It is a great joy to be able to send you this letter as the feast of the Sacred Heart approaches – a celebration of one of the pillars of our spirituality," the letter explained. "What is the meaning of this feast in light of the moment of history we are living? We are approaching the end of an institutional journey."
Representatives of Regnum Christi will soon hold a meeting in Rome, while this summer, territorial assemblies will be held to revise the draft of the Constitutions of the Legionaries.
